What web browser do you prefer to use with KDE?


Firefox doesn't seem to integrate very well with KDE, so I'm looking for something better.

If you want integration, use KDE's Konqueror.

Yeah I've been using Konqueror. The only problem is it doesn't have tabs (or does it?)

So I was wondering if there was something else for KDE

It does indeed. Go to File->New Tab. You can also modify the menu-bar to get an icon for a new tab right next to the Homepage button for instance, to make it easier.

Konquerer is tops for KDE integration, but personally I use firefox out of old habit, and with running a KDE theme on Firefox, I really don't miss anything integrationwise or otherwise..

Yes, Konqueror does have tabs. <Ctrl><Shift><N> for a new tab.

Also see if your current settings in Settings->Load Profile are Tabbed Browsing or Web Browsing instead of Simple Browser. And save your profile back to it once you've added the Tab bar or other toolbars.

I'd use Konqueror but Flash never works consistently with it.

Steve, what do you mean Firefox doesn't integrate well with KDE? If it is the look, then use Gtk-Qt-Engine: http://slackbuilds.org/repository/12...gtk-qt-engine/

Right now I use FF 3.0.5, Opera 9.63 and Seamonkey 1.1.14.

I use Seamonkey all the time. There are a few flash video sites that always refuse to go into full screen mode in Seamonkey. Firefox and Opera. The only browser that works with these is I.E. unfortunately. Watching a movie in a small window on the monitor is not the most satisfying of experiences !

Thanks guys, I guess I should have looked harder
I'm used to being able to open a new tab by middle-clicking in firefox and I guess I assumed there was not tabs when middle-clicking didn't open a new tab in Konqueror

I actually also had that problem.
If you right-click the video, choose flashplayer settings, and disable hardware acceleration it should fix it. It did for me anyway

Thanks for the link, that might help with the appearance

Firefox just doesn't look or feel like it belongs in KDE, plus things like Kprinter don't work with it. (or at least they didn't)
